Transgender movie actor

The first trans person to be nominated for a grammy for playing a trans character, Chilean singer/actor Daniela Vega makes history in this gripping drama that explores the narrative of Marina, a trans woman who is forced to prove the validity of her relationship to her partner’s family when he suddenly falls ill and dies. Her partner Orlando loved her for her, but now she is faced with her entire identity being questioned and scrutinized through inhumane means. Daniela shines in ‘A Fantastic Woman’, bringing an incredibly honest perspective to a film that is a raw depiction of prejudice, providing a glimpse into a world unknown by most.
